On the orders of the day:
Mr. T. J. O'NEILL (Kamloops): Yesterday when I was speaking in this house in the debate on the mobilization act amendment bill, the hqn. member for Vancouver East (Mr. Maclnnis) said that some things I said were
not true. In order to keep the record straight I wish to refer to page 3770 of Hansard, where the hon. member for Vancouver East is reported to have said:
I want to correct the hon. member's statement. His assertions are wrong. There was no Cooperative Commonwealth Federation in this house in 1934.
The record is somewhat different. On February 1, 1933, at page 1687 of Hansard, the late Mr. J. S. Woodsworth, then the member for Winnipeg North Centre, speaking to a resolution of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, had this to say:
When I introduced this motion a year ago there was no large body of organized opinion behind it. To-day that situation is altered, for last August there was organized the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation-
Then he goes on to say:
We endorse the general viewpoint and programme involved in socialization of our economic life as these have already been outlined and accepted by the labour, farmer and socialist groups affiliating.
